At Roberto Clemente Community Academy, we are advocates of being physically fit and learning activities that can be done for a life-span. Dancing is a great activity to pursue at almost any age and provides you with cardiovascular endurance - not to mention some fun! Our freshmen have just completed a 2-week dance unit which involved a combination of line, folk, and traditional dancing. Students learned a variety of dances, from the Wobble line dance to “Tinikling”, a traditional dance from the Philippines. For an end-of-unit project, students had to create their own choreography to a dance which is based on either...
On Wednesday, October 9, 2013 something historic happened in our community. For the first time in 40 years, the faculty and staff of Roberto Clemente Community Academy took an educational walk down Paseo Boricua to learn about and become familiar with the community in which they teach.

Roberto Clemente Community Academy is once again a Level 2 school per the CPS Performance Policy. Clemente attributes the success to comprehensive reform measures over the past two years. Major areas of improvement that contributed to the Level 2 score include: diminishing one-year dropout rates to 1.9%, increasing attendance to 81.5%, and supporting freshmen with a 89.0% on-track rate. Additionally, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate enrollment more than doubled, and will continue to increase as the school adopts a wall-to-wall IB program. Congratulations, Wildcats!
